Members of the Fairfax County Police Department's Helicopter Unit have been recognized for rescuing two young boys who went missing during a snow storm.

The Gus Crawford Air Crew of the Year Award was given to Pilot Garrett Wymer, Master Police Officer Paul DeHaven and Police Officer First Class Timothy Schilling.

The rescue took place in January when two young brothers got lost in a dense wooded area of Spotsylvania County while playing in the snow. "Fairfax One", the county's police helicopter, spotted the boys using an infrared camera.
